Gallery North, 310 Fourth St. NW, Gallery North's First Friday open house will be held from 2 to 6 p.m. The showcase artist will be Alayna Greer. She loves to draw but was unable to use a paint brush because her hands shake. Instead, she picked up a rattle can and has been spray
painting since she was 15. The featured artist will be John Winter, who recently retired after 38 years working for Minnesota State Parks and an additional six years as Beltrami County's park director. His background experience contributes to his love for nature and recreation and has helped to develop the subjects he now paints, a press release said.
Headwaters Music and Arts, 519 Minnesota Ave. NW, will feature "Darkness, Light, Darkness," a series in charcoal by Katie Lynn Dixon of Nashwauk, Minn.
